Just testing out a minor update for Datascape when I decided to plot the 2015 General Election results data on a scatter plot, not geographically. I chose:
- X: electorate
- Y: Margin/majority
- Z: Turnout
- Size: Size of UKIP vote
- Colour: Winning party
A quick fly around of the data revealed a number of interesting points:
It is at the small majority end where we tend to see the smaller parties - few of them have massive majorities in their seats.
And the most striking - looking at the turnout axis the Conservatives dominate in the high turnout seats and Labour in the low turnout seats. Cause or effect?
